September is harvest month. We reap what we have sown. We step into our abundance.
The sun transits the constellation of Mercury between August 22nd and September 21st.
It is this month when we start to feel a sense of accomplishment. We have worked so hard all year and now we enter the final push into autumn. We finish our projects, we close things out, and we wrap things up. This is the beginning of the end of a cycle and it is felt intensely in September as perhaps at no other time during the year.
We close out summer, saying goodbye to the brightest days of our year and begin to feel the brisk, coolness of the fall days.
Remember that astrology serves as a guide for your spirit and your connection to the universe. The messages contained here speak not only to the location of the sun and the planets but also to a generalized energy of your inner being and its human form, based on the sign under which you were born.
Also keep in mind that any horoscope, reading, or messaging that is rooted in fear and negativity is not coming from the divine.
The divine, the universe, does not speak in negatives.
The universe only operates from a place of yes.
This horoscope for September is necessarily broad and general and speaks to what is happening in the grand cycles of the universe as they relate to your overarching birth sign. Take it lightly and gently and respond from a place of openness and love.
In the northern hemisphere, September is the month of Virgo, which represents the virgin. Mythologically throughout history the true meaning of virgin is one who is independent, empowered, self-possessed. She is a precise and critical thinker, acting from a place of service and reception.
Virgo is an earth sign and deeply feminine, which means this is a time to access your divine feminine side, whether you are male or female biologically. Get into receptive mode, align with your nurturing, welcoming, encouraging side. This is also our time to see ourselves as firmly planted, present, and true to ourselves. Wherever you are, be there, in that moment in time.
As we enter the autumnal equinox, the perfect balance between day and night later in the month, it is also a time to bring balance into our lives while we honor our roots.
We enter autumn hopeful and fulfilled by all that has come, and eager to see how it all comes together. Allow yourself time to observe and reflect the changing of the seasons, the turning of the leaves, the brightening of the colors, and all of that within yourself as well.

Mercury goes Retrograde in Libra – September 9
Misunderstandings and poor communication feel heightened for the next three weeks, especially in the love arena. Breathe, remain calm, and have faith in your deeply rooted relationships. This too shall pass.
Full Moon in Pisces – September 10
This is a dreamy and mystical moon that will help us get through retrograde with feelings of calm and peace. Shift your focus to controlling only the controllable and not expending energy on needless worry. All worry is needless.
Sun enters Libra/Fall Equinox – September 21
Balance, peace, and harmony are upon us as we enter Libra season. Deal with conflict and struggle with grace and harmony, remembering that we are all connected, and most of the time, we are just not seeing the light within each other.
New Moon in Libra – September 25
This new moon offers an emotional reset and brings balance back to our lives. Consider forming new relationships and trust the clarity you see with your intuitive third eye.
